SynopsisOn the trail of an aristocrat’s secret son, enquiry agent Mark Braglewicz finds his quarry in a music hall, performing as a trapeze artist with his twin sister. Graceful, beautiful, elusive, and strong, Pen Starling is like nobody Mark’s ever met—and everything he’s ever wanted. But the long-haired acrobat has an earldom and a fortune to claim.

Pen doesn’t want to live as any sort of man, least of all a nobleman. The thought of being wealthy, titled, and always in the public eye is horrifying. He likes his life now—his days on the trapeze, his nights with Mark. And he won’t be pushed into taking a title that would destroy his soul.

But there’s a killer stalking London’s foggy streets, and more lives than just Pen’s are at risk. Mark decides he must force the reluctant heir from music hall to manor house, to save Pen’s neck. Betrayed by the one man he thought he could trust, Pen never wants to see his lover again. But when the killer comes after him, Pen must find a way to forgive—or he might not live long enough for Mark to make amends.

Impressions:  I could not wait to read this new series from K.J. Charles.  I knew I would love them, but I couldn't have imagined how much I would fall in love with Mark and Pen!

This is a great series overall, and I read them so quickly, but only because I stopped sleeping and chose reading instead!  Books 1 and 2 were great, but book 3 was something special.  I love the diversity in this series, and in book 3, Charles wrote a genderqueer character that was so well developed and so relatable that it was a joy to read.  Pen explores his own identity in such a thoughtful manner, but one that feels so appropriate to the 1870's, and yet never becomes pandering or anachronistic.

At the heart of this story is...well, a lot of heart.  There is so much love (and sexy times) that I will remember this as a love story more than anything else.  I loved seeing some beloved characters from book 1 and 2 also!

This will be a book I don't soon forget- because I'll be re-reading it over and over again!

Highly recommended!
